    Pros

    The 401K match, salary and commission is all good. The products are good from a digital marketing standpoint however they need more transparency customers need to know what they are buying.

    Cons

    Terrible vacation time off and benefits. Provide Insurance options without just a high deductible. I had to pay thousands of dollars for my medical care already. Having NO options for co-pay and just offering 1 plan is ridiculous. Do we really need high deductibles - we are a billion dollar company lets take care of our own!

    Get your experience then run far away

    Pros

    Some of my coworkers, decent benefits, creative control on work, open to new ideas, and good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Embarrassingly low wages for the amount of work being done. (Get your experience then run far away) Raises are a complete joke. I got better raises working in retail. Too many lies from management when asking for a decent raise. You tell workers there is not enough money to pay them then turn around and promote others or create new positions. I don't know about other TEGNA stations but the one I worked at had a very hostile work environment. Management allowed for it and some colleagues were very insecure and thought too highly of themselves. Too focused on getting accolades but not really caring about being a good journalist. I saw a lot of racial and gender discrimination. A lot of people who clearly had no experience in certain areas were getting management positions. New positions titles were made up out of thin air. It was insane. Incompetence and laziness are allowed. From what I've seen, the worse you are professionally and personally, the higher up you go in the ranks. Advice to those looking to get work for TEGNA - Get your experience and move on to a different company.

    Pros

    Great staff, fun company. There are a lot of fun things the company puts on for its staff.

    Cons

    Pay, they are cheap. You do a lot of work for little pay and are discouraged from working OT even if you need it to complete your responsibilities.
